Pontoon has shown its enthusiasm and commitment about apprenticeships through being part of the global Adecco Way to Work™ programme. As part of the scheme the Group has launched its first global ‘Experience Work Day’, opening 700 offices and branches to nearly 8,000 young people. Participants have the chance to shadow The Adecco Group employees in the departments and roles of their choice, learn more about their preferred jobs by almost literally stepping into their mentors’ shoes, and improve their skills through workshops and coaching.
The initiative includes almost 500 workshops, providing guidance on careers, job hunting, applications and interviews, as well as sessions on CV clinics, social media identity assessment, coaching to master professional interviews and seminars to assess and guide the development of the key skills required in today’s labour market.
Giving young talent a chance
Many young people struggle to find a way into work because they lack the experience and skills that companies look for. Through CEO for One Month and Experience Work Day, we give young people hands-on experience to help them to get a foot on the career ladder and prepare for success.
